Toyota has announced a recall of 87,000 Prius and Lexus HS250h models from the 2010 model year.
The recall involves an issue surrounding a brake pressure accumulator that may fail as a result of a fatigue crack caused by vibration.
Owners will be notified by first class mail, with recalled vehicles having their brake booster pump inspected to see if a replacement part is necessary. If it is, a new (and improved) unit will be installed at no cost.
There are no recorded cases of accidents or injuries reported in association with this recall.
Anyone with questions is advised to call the Toyota Customer Experience number at 1-800-331-4331 or the Lexus Customer Satisfaction number at 1-800-255-3987 or visit either Toyota Safety Recall and Car Service Information or Lexus Recall Information.
